We power the community voice

PCTV is a community media organization serving the City of Pittsfield. We empower our community to create media and amplify diverse voices through the best technology and wide-reaching platforms. We believe that everyone in our area should have access to shared media experiences which inform, educate, engage, and entertain; foster civic and community engagement; and promote transparency in local government. We operate a dynamic media center located at 4 Federico Drive, along with three cable television channels loaded with local content. We make that content available here at pittsfieldtv.org, and on several internet platforms through our PCTV Select service.

Become Part of the Crew

Imagine yourself behind a camera during a live television production. Or being in charge of the audio on the show. Or creating the computer graphics needed for the show. Or, maybe you picture yourself in front of the video editing computer, finishing the program off for air. Or running a remote camera at a remote location for a special event. If that sounds like a lot of fun (spoiler alert: it is!), why don’t you join the crew here at PCTV? With our low membership rates, virtually anyone can participate in the many programs produced at PCTV. And as always, your training and equipment use is all included with your membership.
